Huge Victory - Another Court Refuses to Dismiss NSA Spying Case

A federal judge in Oregon today rejected [PDF] the government's attempt to block a lawsuit against the NSA's massive and illegal spying program. This is a huge victory -- like Judge Walker in our case against AT&T and Judge Diggs Taylor in the ACLU's case in Michigan, Judge King rejected the government's motion to dismiss on the basis of the "state secrets" privilege.

But some Congressmen are still trying to squash this vigorous judicial oversight. Fortunately, Specter's surveillance bill was once again stalled before it could reach a vote today. Keep your phone calls to Congress coming and stop the surveillance bills.
